Doctor's Resume Work in Ghana

Yesterday, doctors in Ghana ended a month-long nation wide strike and resumed work today. According to the doctors on strike, the strike was held in protest to a non-payment of salary arrears. As part of the strike, the Ghana Medical Association (GMA) withdrew all services in government hospitals throughout the nation, beginning on April 8th. The strike ended following a ruling by the Ghana Labour Commission, stating that the salary arrears would be paid over a period of three installments. The GMA issued a statement that expects the government to adhere to the stipulations of the Labour Commission within one month. This strike follows several strikes over the past year and faced many appeals to end it. Hopefully this new agreement will lead to a more continuous provision of medical care, with improved conditions for both patients and doctors. Find out more here:
